Solution to Glo delivery

Under the new regulation of Globacom Nigeria, messages with numbers or names of other operators in text box or sender ID’s sent to GLO lines will be blocked as Globacom strictly forbids sending messages with marketing of other operators (that includes sending numbers and names of other operators).

The good news is, messages with numbers included in its content can now be sent only if it is an alert from financial institutions. If you have any financial traffic, then please send us the exact sender ID and message you want to send so we can register it within Globacom and traffic can go through, otherwise, Globacom strictly forbids sending mention traffic through their direct server. This rule is applied for all vendors with direct lines to Globacom.

Please send us suggestions and feedbacks so as to know areas of improvement in order to serve you better.

Thank you for your loyalty throughout the year.

Self service

It has been observed that many customers would have to call before their accounts can be credited, due to the fact that the teller at the bank made a typographical error by posting incomplete characters of the email addresses used as the depositor’s name and many other vices.  Smslive247 has proffered a solution to this, all you need do is confirm the payment from your end and credit your account personally.  We have tested this feature for some time now and it has been effective in some cases.

To confirm your payment: log in to your smslive247 account, under ‘Account Overview’ you will see ‘Account not credited?

Click here to confirm your payment’ on the page that opens, there you will select

1. Date Type:  there are two options a. Exact Date b. Date Range. If you are sure of the date of the payment, you should choose the ‘Exact Date’ option but when you are not sure of the date, you should choose the ‘Date Range’ option. Then input the date.

2. Bank: Select the bank you paid to.  The list of banks we use will be displayed when you click on the drop down arrow.

3. Amount: Insert the amount you paid in the text box provided for it.

4. Depositor’s name used: type in the name you wrote on the deposit slip in the text box provided for it.            

5.  Confirm Button: After all the details have been specified, click on confirm button, the search engine on our platform will search for your payment and credit your account automatically.

Reasons for undelivered messages

This is to bring to your notice some changes on the Sender's ID option.  Some of the network providers have recently included some measures on their server to curtail fraud as its rate increases daily.

Some of these measures are:

1.             GLO Nigeria does not allow the usage of Phone numbers as the Sender's ID, as well as the inclusion of Phone numbers in the body of the message.
2.            MTN Nigeria does not allow the use Promo, Y’ello, MTN etc in a message or as the Sender’s id.
3.            Mixing alphabets with numbers such as FECA 2013 as Sender Id is not accepted on all networks.
4.            Usage of numeric characters less than 11 digits such as ‘999’, ‘3021’ or ’777’ as Sender Id is not accepted on all networks.

You may be charged and the messages will not get delivered when any of these measures is ignored, we would not be able to refund the units charged because we would be billed as well for the messages.  So to avoid this, you need to take note of these measures.

We want to hear from you! Have any suggestions, ideas or thoughts on how we can improve? Email us at or call support on 08099999247and help us become a better company for you.

Delivery reports for sent messages

Whenever messages are sent out of your account, a delivery report is usually generated to help you know the status of your sent messages.

The SMS delivery notification sent to your mailbox contains the list of numbers the message was sent to. It gives a summary of the total submitted, total failed and total SMS credits charged for each SMS sent.

Nevertheless, you can view the status of your messages by clicking on The ''Delivery Report'' link of each message sent.
To view the delivery report, click on ''Sent Messages'' which is on the left hand side of your account.

Once the page opens, select the PERIOD and click on the SEARCH button.
When the page opens, click on the ''Delivery Report'' link after each SMS to view the status of your messages.
On the delivery report page, there are terms that explain the status of each SMS sent.

The terms are explained below:

DELIVERED – this status means that your sent message has been successfully delivered to your recipient as supposed.

ACCEPTED – this status shows that your sent messages have been ACCEPTED by the network service providers of your recipients awaiting delivery status. In this case, the messages have been successfully sent out of our SMS gateway to your recipient’s service providers respectively waiting to be delivered to each of your recipients on different network. If your sent SMS remains on this list longer than it’s expected then there is probably a network problem with the mobile network service providers.

UNDELIVERED – this status shows that messages sent are not deliverable to your recipients as supposed. Your recipients are either not within network coverage area or does not have the facility to receive text messages.

REJECTED – messages sent are rejected and not deliverable to your recipients due to incorrect input of mobile numbers or mobile numbers that does not exist.

EXPIRED – sent messages expire on delivery to its intended recipients once it exceeds its validity period of delivery.
